MOTORING NEWS - The 23rd George Old Car Show will take place on 9 and 10 February 2019 and will focus on rare and exotic cars.
The show is sponsored by Oakhurst Insurance Company.
Robert Middelmann of Botriver owns an Everitt, Metzger and Flanders, or EMF, which was manufactured in Detroit, USA in 1912.
This rare gem will be exhibited at the show.
"Our car was found in Cape Town by the late Angus Kinnes, who was one of the founder members of the Crankhandle Club in Cape Town," said Middelmann.
The car has participated in numerous rallies and shows.
"My parents completed the Milligan Rally a few years back.
"The car was driven to the start of the Milligan in Oudtshoorn, participated in the rally, and was driven back to the farm without any mishap - a journey of around 1 600km! I have exhibited the car at the George Old Car Show many times and have participated in several of the Veteran's Tours."
The George Old Car Show will take place at PW Botha College in York Street.
